You heard it here first (or at least, you heard it very quickly).

That’s right, as of about 4 minutes ago, Google announced on Twitter that the Gingerbread update is now rolling out to Nexus One and Nexus S owners. They caution that it may take a few weeks for the OTA to complete (i.e. for your phone to recognise there’s an OTA update available).

However, following simple instructions (given below) you can force your phone to check for an update, and if it’s there, you’ll get it straight away.

If you’re on a Nexus One – this means you can get Gingerbread and enjoy all the new features. For Nexus S owners, who already have Gingerbread, this update provides fixes for annoying bugs (such as random reboots), and updates support for Near Field Communication (NFC).

If you’re running stock firmware on your Nexus One or Nexus S, follow these instructions to see if the OTA update is available to you yet:

  1. Load Settings
  2. Go to ‘About phone’
  3. Go to ‘System Updates’
  4. Check for updates.
